First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa made another surprise visit at United Bulawayo Hospital and Mpilo Hospital. This comes a few weeks after she made another surprise visit to Harare Hospital. The first lady wanted to experience first hand what patients go through. According to a report by ZBC, the nurses at Mpilo Hospital were unaware of her identity and treated her like any other patient. Some of the nurses reportedly took their time and had no sense of urgency. Mrs Mnangagwa was informed that there were no cards to take her admission details and the nurses had to use a piece of paper.
The first lady later gave financial assistance to the mother of Charles Nyathi, who was crying as she had no money to pay for her son’s liver treatment. She also visited the children’s ward and donated grocery hampers.
